Meridian Audio is a British manufacturer of high-performance, high-fidelity audio and video components and systems founded in 1977 by Bob Stuart and Allen Boothroyd.[1]

History[edit]

Meridian Audio founders Allen Boothroyd and Bob Stuart

Based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, Meridian Audio was founded by John Robert (Bob) Stuart and Allen Boothroyd in 1977. Since the company's inception, all Meridian products have been built in the UK.[1]The company was the among the first to introduce active loudspeakers designed for the domestic market [1] and was the first British company to manufacture a CD player in 1983. The Meridian MCD, launched in 1985, was the first audiophile CD player.[2][3] Meridian also created the first digital surround-sound processor, the 565 in 1994 as well as the first DSP-based digital active loudspeakers.

Today, the company's two largest markets are the United States[4] and the UK.[citation needed]

Until 2007, the company operated without a marketing department. Hobbyists favoured the company's products, engineers ran the company, and instead of marketing their products the company focused on making technical improvements to them. During the pre-2007 economic boom, exports made up 80 per cent of Meridian's sales.[1]

Meridian MCD, J[edit]

In 1984, the two founders, operating under the name Boothroyd-Stuart created a CD player under the brand name Meridian. They named the device the MCD, J.[5]Having acknowledged that they lacked the experience or manufacturing facilities to create a CD player from scratch,[6] Boothroyd-Stuart turned to Phillips, who allowed small companies to purchase their CD-101 decks and design their own cases and interfaces.[5] The two co-founders suspected that the mechanical parts and electronics of mass-produced CD players negated the overall sound quality.[5] Specifically, they felt that a lot of the sonic faults were not down to the system itself but to imperfections in the digital data extraction, the D/A conversion and the audio output circuitry.[6] Moreover, they believed physically stabilizing the disc in the player eliminated the digital signal decoding errors caused by vibrations. Therefore, they discarded the deck’s analog audio circuitry and improved the unit’s power supply.[5] Most-importantly they sped up the deck’s laser-tracking servo’s focus reaction time so that it could track warped discs better. They also installed a new audio board with better grounding and shielding capabilities, aluminum electrolytic output coupling capacitors and a 3-pole analog filter section.[6]

In 2007, a consortium of investors purchased a minority holding in the company.[1][7]Following the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent recession the firm underwent three years of restructuring and experienced a 50% reduction in sales to the U.S.A but a 10% increase in overall sales. The company also reduced its product line from 120 products to 35.[1]The company opened its first shop in Bangkok, Thailand in November 2009, followed by three more retail outlets in Seoul, Santiago and Mexico City and a U.K. branch in Oxford.[1][8]The manufacturer makes its products in Britain uses trades such as joinery, cabinetry and upholstery with some digital components sourced from Asia.[9]Bob Stuart created a movie projector system.[1]In 2014, Meridian launched Meridian Lossless Packing a lossless compression format.[1] The format is the standard used on DVDs and Blu-ray discs.[10]Stuart resigned from the company in September 2017, while Boothroyd resigned as director in March 2020.[11]
